the ability to offer the additional diagnostic test of electric
stimulation using the Digitest3, dentists worldwide are routinely
diagnosing and treating problematic teeth that otherwise might have to

Digitest® 3 electrically stimulates the tooth to test for vitality.
Comparing the response to the stimulus of the suspected tooth with a
known healthy tooth’s response to an identical stimulus can help you
hone in on the source of the patient’s pain.
How it Works
new Parkell Digitest 3 avoids patient discomfort in two ways: Instead
of a constant current, the Digitest 3 stimulus consists of an
oscillating pulse. We like to refer to it as the “gentle pulse” because a
vital tooth feels the stimulus at a level well below the pain
threshold. The Digitest 3 also increases the stimulus gradually, without
sudden jumps that can trigger an “ouch” response.
trick when testing pulp vitality is to trigger a response from a vital
tooth without hurting the patient. Many pulp testers go from “no
reaction” to a jolt of pain in one step.
